# CHAPTER 6 SYSTEM DYNAMIC ANALYSES The device was in the form of an inverted beam engine, and incorporated the

characteristic phase shift between the displacer and piston that we see all Stirling engine today. The engine also featured the cyclic heating and cooling of the internal gas by means of an external heat source, but the device was not yet known as Stirling engine. In Beta type Stirling engine, it consists single power piston and displacer, whose ideal purpose is to displace the working gas at constant volume and shuttle it between the expansion and the compression spaces than the series arrangement cooler, regenerator and heater. For Rhombic linkage, the drive utilizes a jointed rhomboid to convert linear work from a reciprocating piston to rotational work. The connecting rod of the piston is rigid as opposed to a common reciprocating engine which directly connects the piston to the crankshaft with a flexible joint in the piston. Instead, the rod is connected to the one of the corner of a rhombus. When force is applied to the piston, it pushes down, at the same time, the outer corners of the rhomboid push out. They push on two cranks or flywheels which causes them to rotate, each in opposite directions. As the wheels rotate the rhombus progresses its change of shape from being flattened in the direction to the piston axis at top dead centre to being flattened in the perpendicular direction to the piston axis at the bottom dead centre. Dead centre is when the value of clearance is nearly same as the power maximum then the engine is assume as stable condition where there is no vibration.

## Angular acceleration of crankshaft

The angular velocity, have to be maintained in order to make the movement of the flywheel constant, therefore

Thus,

Since the gas inside the cylinder is the source of the movement of the flywheel, the torque applied at the flywheel is the same as the torque of the gas. included torque of the mass flywheel and the movement occur in the system.

## is the pressure of the displacer

In rhombic system, the displacer pressure exerted is the same as the pressure on the displacer and the area of the displacer is the same with the area of the power piston since diameter of piston is equal to the diameter of displacer ( )

At the crankcase where the force exerted on the rhomboid linkage, the force is divided into two since the rhomboid is symmetrical in shape. Therefore force acting at one side of the crank is

## From the vector diagram,

From the given equation, since the piston is moving downwards, therefore,

## From previous Schmidts analysis, the piston acceleration are obtained

( )

From the acceleration of the piston itself, the velocity of the piston can be determined since the acceleration is the derivative of the velocity with respect to time

35

To get the velocity, the acceleration should be integrated with respect to time

## 6.4 BETA TYPE FREE PISTON MODELLING

One of the novel applications of the Stirling cycle is in free piston configurations and indeed the configuration is one which holds immediate promise.

Free piston engines operate without physical linkage instead they rely only on the gas pressure and in some cases mechanical springs to impart the correct motions to the reciprocating elements. Such machines have the advantage of simplicity, low cost, ultra reliability, and freedom or working gas leakage over the conventional Stirling engines. Depending on particular configurations, these engines may also be designed to operate at constant frequency.
